DAYCARE | 6 WEEKS -12 Months
We’re mothers too… We get it. It’s that struggle of having to return to work and doing what’s best for your family.
And it’s why we work so hard to provide a safe, secure, comfortable, and truly loving environment for your little one.
ENRICHING EDUCATIONAL ENVIRONMENT
FULLY BILINGUAL PRESCHOOL
A full English and Spanish environment awaits your child. Bilingualism has been well documented to be a significant competitive advantage later in life for college and job opportunities.
TEACHING SOCIAL SKILLS
Your child will begin to interact with children and adults in a respectful manner, learning how to share, play together, and ask for help when needed.
We'll help you through all of your infant's developmental stages
Infants will typically learn how to smile, laugh, roll, crawl, melt anybody’s heart, and start the beginning stages of talking (most commonly known as babbling). They will be very active and learn how to move very quickly, which as a parent might even seem more like teleporting.
Infants love to be proactive as they are starting to wake up and explore the world that they have been brought into. It will seem like they are growing more and more each day, and oftentimes, that is the case. Even their features will change at a rapid rate.
By the end of their time as an infant, they will have learned about their surroundings and themselves. They start discovering their hands, feet, nose, and mouth. Typically, it is not until they are being held do they realize they have the exact same parts as their parent, family member, and or caregiver. As a result, they will play with their feet, hands, and put anything in sight inside their mouths (which is why we’re very careful with our infants and the rooms, cribs, and play areas!).
By the end of an infant’s journey, their developmental skills will have been well expanded. Their small muscles become stronger through fine motor skills (grabbing things with their hands) and their large muscles increase through gross motor skills (standing or learning to stand on their own). Social and emotional development skills also begin to flourish. They learn how to respond to their names and become fearful of people they are not used to.
Frequently asked questions
Our center uses Preschool2Me, an app that connects parents and the childcare center by providing digital daily reports, pictures and messages. In addition, parents may phone or e-mail us at any time. Parents may also request a parent/teacher meeting. We have an open-door policy, so parents may drop in at any time, but please stop by the office so that we can make sure the visit is not disruptive to the child or the classroom.
We gladly welcome parents to join us for celebrations, birthdays and presentations. A teacher may also ask for parent volunteers to help with an activity. If you would like to participate you may always ask the administration for opportunities. All parents who volunteer in the child’s class must pass a level 2 DCF fingerprint clearance.
Infants nap every day from 12:00 to 2:00 pm.
A developmental assessment is conducted annually. In addition, formal assessments are conducted quarterly. These assessments not only help parents to understand where their child is in his or her development, but also what areas can be strengthened. These assessments guide us, as educators, in developing our curriculum so that it matches the needs of the children in the class.

We ask that children go fever free for 24 hours before returning to school. Students with contagious diseases must bring a clearance letter from the doctor upon their return to school.
